Disastrous front desk -- would you hand your credit card to these people? – Re:AB has a lovely physical space and some good instructors (mixed bag, but where isn't?). The booking staff, however, is a disaster. Don't count on your instructor actually being there for your appointment -- or, indeed, your appointment being recorded at all. As for payment, let's just say it took 5 telephone calls to my bank and 4 to the studio -- which repeatedly failed to call me back -- to reverse several thousand dollars worth of accidental charges. The "buzz" in the locker rooms is all about these constant errors; every student of re:AB seems to have a story. Is it any surprise that most of the best instructors have left within the past year or are about to leave?
unfriendly instructors – i've been doing pilates for a couple of years and i decided to try re ab . it is undoubtedly a 'serious' pilates studio and all the instructors well trained . However some of the instructors are downright rude. Emily in particular is very aloof. They are bossy instructors who make you feel almost inadaquate, I am a dedicated student but these instructors on the exception of Aby and Mimosa have no humour in them whatsoever and are very serious, I wanted to say " lighten up ", You can still dedicate a serious pilates practice and enjoy it at the same time.
A life changing experience! – I?ve had a serious back condition for most of my life, which was the result of an early high school sports accident. It?s rare when I?m not in great pain. I have avoided surgery and other disruptive treatment for years. I was introduced to Brooke Siler, the founder of re:AB pilates studio, a few years ago. Brooke is one of the brightest and most professional, trainers I have ever met. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable about Pilates, but she takes that extra time to truly understand her client?s physical and emotional needs, before she designs a program for them. After my first session with Brooke, I left her studio with a smile from ear to ear, as I had not felt pain free, and so physically aligned for years. Each successive session with Brooke was more powerful than the previous. I want to thank Brooke, and her wonderful team of trainers, for changing my life. Pilates is now an integral part of my every day living.
Brooke = Pilates – Brooke Siler is an amazing person and a very knowledgeable trainer of Pilates. The popularity of her studio and of her bestselling books are a testament to her skills, professionalism and ability to make Pilates accessible. She has the rare ability to truly understand the clients needs and to teach to that. I highly recommend Brooke and AB Studios.
Head and Shoulders Above the Rest - An outstanding Facility and Staff – Brooke Siler has nurtured her staff and created an incredible overall experience ReAb. The studio itself is appealing and warm, lit gently and with plenty of open space it still maintains a private feeling and inviting atmosphere. The teachers and staff are both accomodating and knowledgable as well as eager to instruct and at the same time are relaxed and extremely capable and well trained. Many are trained by Brooke herself. The experience has been a great one for me. I have been attending group classes weekly for more than a year and often partake in private or duet classes which are superb. Although any of the teachers will give you a great workout and teach you an amazing amount about your mind set, abailty, strength, flexability etc., I highly recommend you take a few classes with Brooke herself. Her attention to detail and body awareness is unparalled and her enthusiasm addictive...
PS - guys, get off your high horse and go try Pilates. Its better than almost any other "gym workout" you've had before. No more girly-girl stigma and I bet you walk away sweating and exhausted after the first class -private or group.
BEST PILATES STUDIO AND INSTRUCTION – I have been impressed with Brooke Siler for years, watching her on various morning shows etc..but always too lazy/busy/tired to sign myself up. After 2 babies in 2 years-I NOW find the time to escape to re:AB and have found my sanctuary. The studio is beautiful and clean, the staff is helpful going above and beyond, and I enjoy working out for the first time in my life! I owe this all to Brooke and her amazing staff. I have developed a bad back after the 2 babies and she takes the time checking there is no strain or pain and I see the results in my shape and my back! GO GO GO to re:AB
THis was the most incredible experience and I have never been more revitalized the service was stellar the attention to my unique problems was addressed with care and thougthfulness. I am totally addi – I am totally addicted to this studio. There is no comparison to other "watered down" versions. The attention to my personal issues was better than a week in therapy. Totally stellar operation!
top notch teachers – It shouldn't come as a surprise that Brooke Siler, the author of one of the best-selling Pilates books: The Pilates Body, has created a first-rate studio. Personally, the most important factor in determining which studio to attend is the quality of the teachers. As Brooke is passionately devoted to her craft, she has begun training the next generation of Pilates instructors. As a result, many of the teachers at re:AB have studied directly under Brooke and your session with them will reflect the high standards she expects.
re:AB is my second home. – I've been going to re:AB *at least* once a week for about a year now. I have tried several different studios and methods around the city, but I just plain love re:AB's authentic approach and the vibe that it cultivates. The teachers are incredibly knowledgeable and motivating. Personally, I look and *feel* different from my time spent there. And if you are a person who thinks Pilates is some sort of dainty, girly exercise, I challenge you to one appointment with Brooke herself. Hands down the best teacher/trainer that I have come across in my years in New York.
Best Pilates in New York – I recently started going to re:AB after an 8 months hiatus (I moved uptown with my wife and baby). While I pumped and did Pilates in some of the most respected studios in the West 50s and the Upper East Side, only re:AB produces a workput that makes me sweat, stretch, and keep my muscles primed. I finetune with privates once a week (Emma, Bettina, Brittany, Jeremy) and take one or two Mat/Tower and WundaChair classes after work. The re:AB difference is in the instructors' attention to detail: anyone teach an exercise-they care about my body. Oh, and the duet classes feel closer to a private than privates at other Authentic Pilates Studios. Its well-trained apprentices may be the biggest bargain in NY.
I am looking as good as I did a year ago. My body at 35 is better than ANY of my grad school friends.
Brooke Siler has created the best studio in NY.. My wife is back as well. re:AB is worth the trip.
